In Leadville, Colorado - I think the town with the highest elevation in the U.S. - at least one of the highest. At over 10,000 feet, it's a charming mountain town with lots of outdoorsy people. This is by the old railroad and you can see some 14,000 foot mountains in the distance.
1. Further on the bike trail- next to Boulder High School, hidden behind the leaves. If it stays until winter, it will be more visible when the trees lose their leaves.
2. Next to the river in Salida, Colorado. Many people go here to enter the water for kayaking, etc. Right now to a walking path and parking lot.

4. On the Boulder Creek Path bike trail - a big biker town with a lot of traffic on this path.
